Hi,

IF you're still looking for an answer, I'd contact the Maryland Historical Society, www.mdhs.org.

I assume what you already found applies to males only. I've heard that women didn't have any rights until about 1850. They couldn't own land or inherit property. The land and property had to be in their father's, husband's or brother's name.
